Band to Join.

ABOUT

Been playing guitar in bands and singing backup for lots of years. Genres are mostly rock and alternative rock type stuff, some blues, some country, a small bit of bluegrass. Guitar is my main instrument. I can also play bass, uke, mandolin, tenor guitar, lap steel, drums, and keys with different levels of proficiency. These days I'm most into Americana type stuff. I'd love to get a trio together to do mostly covers and maybe a few originals in that genre.

See my cover of Joey Landreth's song Forgiveness in my linked videos. You can message me on that channel if you want. Also see the linked videos for my band The Signal Sound for more stuff I've done.

Besides music I'm into motorcycles, mountain biking, snowboarding, camping, soccer, traveling. Most of all I like spending time with my family.

I'm not trying to get rich or famous. I just love making music with friends.
